Re: sending a SMS from a widget application

I'm also trying to add text messaging functionality to a widget and haven't had any luck finding documentation.

 

From the looks of the documentation at the Blackberry Widget API Reference link, it seems like some of the functionality of the MessageArguments object were stripped out when converting the object from Java to Javascript.

 

Or am I missing something?

SMS and MMS messaging isn't available in the Widget APIs yet.. these are currently being worked on and should hopefully be available around the end of the summer.

Re: sending a SMS from a widget application

Our widget APIs are compatible with 6.0 but they also work back on 5.0....

 

New APIs are not delivered as part of the operating system.  They will be delivered like a JavaScript extension so that you can take advantage of new APIs on both new OS versions as well as 5.0.

 

The only time you will not be able to take advantage of a new API back on 5.0 is if the API we are exposing is only available on a newer OS.
